Is there anyone out there who can tell me how my family group descends from Hans Rüger?I tend to think it does, though I don't have a shread of evidence.
Here is the family (about all I have is census records- name is "Ruch" is 1860, Rex every place else): Abraham Rex b. about 1798 Pennsylvania wf. Elizabeth b. about 1802 Pennsylvania They came to Pulaski County, Indiana, about 1839-1840. Children: 1. Daniel/David b. about 1822 Pennsylvania (I'm not absolutely sure he is a son.) 2. Elvina/Lovina b. about 1832 Pennsylvania 3. Levi (my ancestor) b. about 1833 Pennsylvania.Married Sarah Ann Wherloin (=Wehrline?, Werline?, Worly?) December 21, 1852 in White County, Indiana.She was born in Ohio about 1835. She died 1870-1873.Levi married 2nd Esther Laughman February 27, 1873 in Medina County, Ohio.Esther was born in Homer Township, Medina County, Ohio.Her parents were Henry Laughman and Elizabeth Keller.Levi and Esther returned to White County, Indiana, and are in the 1880 Census there. 4. Adeline Rex b. about 1835 Pennsylvania 5. Noah Rexb. about 1839 Pennsylvania.He married Christina Mattix February 20, 1869 (White Co., Indiana).They later moved to Indian Creek Twp., Pulaski Co., Indiana.
Levi and Sarah had five children.His daughter Elizabeth Jane Rex Zehner Baughman (February 1, 1863 Indiana -- December 12,1929 Akron, Ohio) was my great-great-grandmother.
